Tennessee

The Health Data Reporting Act of 2002 #68-11-211 requires the reporting of unusual events to the Tennessee Department of Health.  The purpose of the reporting system is to facilitate the development and implementation of best standards practices among health care providers.  The state hopes that the early detection of medical errors and unexpected events, as well as the identification of measures to improve the delivery of health care and to prevent the recurrence of such errors, will enhance the quality of health services delivered to Tennesseans.
